First, considering some reactions to the slogan "i am Charlie", i want to make clear that it doesn't mean we have the right to insult or despise any religion or anyone's faith and beliefs, in any way. It doesn't mean we agree with all Charlie's publications either.
It means we just can't approve of using terror against humor.
Freedom of expression has undoubtedly to become more mature in France, and "religious neutrality" to get rid of that strong anticlericalism inherited from the French Revolution (Christians and Jews have ferociously been caricatured over the years too).
Indeed, not only any religions are authorized, but all of them are even guaranteed by the State.
So now, let's speak of art again and let's hope all our sketches and paintings may bring a bit of light, joy, peace and love to the world !
If you want to improve your artistic skills, you may be interested in Sketchbook Skool. I've subscribed myself, and wanted to let you know about it. It's fun, and you can share your works with the group when you're done with an assignment. There are lots of different "teacher-artists", so you can explore loads of different styles. I'd just like to say that the six-week courses' rythm is quite demanding though, so if you can postpone some of your family obligations, house repairs, or else, it would be better !!
Now, some sketches made using watercolors, color pencils, ink and/or acrylics. Hope you'll enjoy.
Thanks for passing by and commenting, see you soon.
